Pick an apple! 
Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores

If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.

The AppleFax service mentioned in TidBITS-254 is also available via anonymous FTP! All of the files are in Common Ground MiniViewer format. They include lots of great information such as 50 new features in System 7.5, and why you should use Virtual Memory if you have a Power Mac. Make sure to use the Color/Grayscale setting if you print to a PostScript laser printer or some of the text will not show up. Apple.Fax.Documents/

In addition SK Suh <> comments that the AppleFax 800 numbers do work in Canada.
